Marvel Frozen Dairy has been a Long Island staple for 70+ years, and it now has a brand new location in Astoria, Queens!
Beginning as a custard shop on Lido Beach (on Long Island), Marvel was opened by the Papageorge family in 1951. In 1986 ownership was changed to the Kastafouros who took over the shop and brought with them a few more frozen treats that they added to the menu.
Today on the menu you’ll find regular ice cream, non-fat ice cream, floats, slushies, sundaes, cookie sandwiches, and ice cream cakes. Toppings include sprinkles, crunchies, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, and more. They even recently added some vegan flavors to the menu so their ice cream could be enjoyed by all!
With the summer pretty much here (since everyone knows Memorial Day is the unofficial start of the summer!) and the fact that this dessert staple has a 71-year Greek-owned streak, it’s obvious that this spot will fit right in at its new Astoria location.
The new location is located at 37-01 30th Ave next to The Grand. It’s open daily from 12p.m. – 10p.m.
